Look what happened now...
How are you? Hope all is well. This is Part #1 of the December New Orleans trip. I have already blogged a wee bit about it...here andhere. But this is the actually the beginning of the trip. (I'm still living an inception kinda life.) WTF?!
I should make yet ANOTHER cat. for "birthday parties" as I seem to go to sooo many of them. LOL Anyway this was a surprise party for my besty that lives in New Orleans. We flew out and were sworn to lie to her until the night of the dinner. She's (the one) who reads my blog/getglue/tweets/instagrams/dayre so I had to post I was adventuring to Panama or she would know and I would be killed! Or at least they would make sure I never forgot I was the one who spoiled the surprise. #Suffer4Life
And try to pack for formal events, late nights in the Quarter and Winter/Summer temps. WTF?!?! Not so easy. :( I also noticed my wallet was getting dirty *yuck* so ended up taking a chance and washing it.
As the weather turned off warm again and I was attempting to pack up, #SuperExcited - When suddenly everyone around me falls ILL. :X EVERYONE. I mean Everyone is ill from my mother to the gardner! I tried to back away slowly and not get sprayed with germs but #FML!
You know I ended up sick too. Fuck! So pissed off! ^*^*&%*(%^(&%^&@$^%$@!!!! Cover your ears boys & girls. I was not a happy camper. I had been looking forward to this adventure for MONTHS! And now I was actually too ill to have much %^$&$ fun. HELL!
I didn't tell Angelica or Char I was ill. I looked like death but they pretended not to notice. #TrueFriends over look your zombie face & crazed eyes...
Drove to airport to find it at Over flow! WTH?!? Oh right! It's Christmas!
My big purchase in the Austin Airport. And Yes, it pisses me off that I paid over $5.50USD for 2 regular size bottles of water and its a shit brand I don't even like. Grrr. But it falls under what are you going to do? You are hostage, since you are not allowed to bring water in + I am sick and need fluids. :o
Ok, I will stop bitching and get on with the story...
And if you still believe "getting there is 1/2 the fun" then your not flying commercial.

No pictures in Dallas Airport either. I didn't even have time to buy more water, good things I got 2 the first time. #AlwaysPrepared cough, cough and if you believe that one your new here.
We landed, raced out of the plane as I pulled girls after me. We took the train to another part of the airport because our gate was way far away. And I jumped off train, still pulling the girls, to the gate as they were doing the final boarding call for our flight! I really hate those tight connections. But we did make the plane and it was a smooth flight to New Orleans.
No pictures in that airport because I was puling girls to grab luggage and get in taxi. LOL
Meanwhile at the *hackstand (Thank you Steve for teaching me that word) you are asked where you want to go and then given a paper to show you just how much it's gonna cost.
And yes, you know I knew the cost since I visit pretty often. So I had already warned the girls. We had a nice trip into the Quarter and checked into our hotel.
They fell out while I dealt with the hotel reservations. I don't even remember what we ate that night??!
All I know was my cold/flu/zombieillness was really bad and I slept for a few hours. Its a rule, you see while in the Quarter you are never allowed to sleep more than a few hours, Why? Because there is always so much going on and you need to be out there exploring! LOL
I did go out later and find Evian at a corner store. And the girls and I ate a late supper somewhere. It was good, I was just really tired so no pictures. Oh! I almost forgot! We stumbled across a film crew. It was set up to shot a scene for (Someone said) American Horror Story? We stood around for approx. 2 minutes and saw nothing exciting so we took off. #AttentionSpanofa2yearOld
